How to Find Trout in Productive Stillwaters Seminar 6:00 pm Join us for a lively evening and learn how to up the ante on your lake game. Fly-fishing has its roots firmly entrenched in rivers and streams but every year sees more and more anglers making the migration to stillwaters. But lakes are vast intimidating pieces of water with most providing little or no clues as to the disposition and location of its rich quarry. This presentation examines the many factors affecting fish behavior and their subsequent location within a given lake. Water temperature, barometric pressure, sunlight and a host of other variables have a decided effect upon trout. Applying logic familiar to most river and stream anglers this program focuses upon using these variables as a tool to quickly eliminate non productive water ensuring successes far outweigh the failures. Seminar cost: $20. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (360) 312-7978 if interested in signing up.
